Sandra Kay "Sandy" Duncan (born February 20, 1946) is an American singer, dancer, comedian and actress of stage and television, recognized through a blonde, pixie cut hairstyle, and perky demeanor. She is known for her performances in the Broadway revival of Peter Pan and in the sitcom The Hogan Family. Duncan has been nominated for three Tony Awards, two Emmy Awards, and two Golden Globe awards.
She met singer-actor Bruce Scott (born Bruce Scott Zaharaides) during the Off-Broadway production of Your Own Thing, and they were married in September 1968. Their divorce, finalized in October, 1972, was caused by Duncan's success and rise to stardom. Duncan told People Magazine in 1979 that "It was very threatening to Bruce."
Her second marriage was to Dr. Thomas Calcaterra on January 10, 1973; it lasted until 1979. Calcaterra is a head/neck oncologist who practices at UCLA Medical Center Division of Head and Neck Surgery and teaches surgery at UCLA Medical School. Duncan and Dr. Calcaterra met because he was a consulting surgeon on her brain tumor surgery, after which they began dating. This marriage also failed, according to Duncan, because of the demands of her wildly successful nightclub act that she toured with in 1978 and her refusal to stay and home and trying to be a good "doctor's wife".
Since July 21, 1980, she has been married to Don Correia. They have two sons; Jeffrey (born October 5, 1982) and Michael (born March 19, 1984). She and her husband live in New York City, NY. Her father Mancil Ray Duncan died on December 22, 1994 and her mother died on December 23, 1997. In Taylorville, Illinois (near Springfield), a street was named "Sandy Duncan Drive" in her honor because her character on Funny Face and The Sandy Duncan Show, Sandy Stockton, was from Taylorville.
Duncan survived a brain tumor located behind her left optic nerve and the "delicate" surgery to remove it in 1971. As a result of her brain tumor and recovery, she lost vision in her left eye, but because the eye still tracked with her right eye, Duncan and her doctors elected to leave her natural eye in place. Due to this condition, it does often appear as though she has a lazy eye.
